Why Claire Lees chose Deal
Deal is a fantastic location for a holiday or short break throughout the seasons with its location by the sea and beautiful Kent countryside. Deal is a quaint, unspoilt British seaside town with a maritime history and with Nelson a frequent visitor. The cottage was bought due to its sought after location in Deal's historic Conservation Area. The Conservation Area is an interesting mix of Georgian fisherman cottages and Victorian cottages all painted in varying pastel shades. The cottage is on Nelson Street, a quiet street set back from Deal's interesting High Street with its independent shops, coffee shops, antique & home interior shops and local markets. The beach is only a two to three minute walk away. The residents of Deal are welcoming and you will be met by friendly smiles. We offer free Wi-Fi and a TV with DVD player that shows 3D films. There is a Bosch Tassimo coffee machine. The IKEA integrated kitchen is recently fitted with fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. There is also a toaster and microwave. The master bed has a luxury topper for added comfort and the duvets are all a mix of goose feather and down as well as the pillows. The rooms at the front of the house are shuttered on the inside.There are even some synthetic pillows should that be your preference. If you enjoy outside space, there is a small paved courtyard with flowerpots perfect for relaxing with a coffee over the papers. There is also a Weber bbq and with a fishmongers just around the corner you could be bbqing some delicious locally sourced fish.

Amazing place, great location
Had a amazing time with the family.
Nice little cottage, great location.
A lovely property, clean and well presented. Deal itself is a great little town with everything you need on your doorstep.
The only downside we found was lack of parking near the cottage (hence 4 stars).
Thanks for having us!
Lovely homely cottage
A lovely cottage - beautifully decorated. In a super location the cottage had everything we needed, our children loved the selection of toys! A very relaxing break.
Deal's pebble beach is a short walk away - you will pass picturesque fisherman cottages to reach the Georgian seafront with its 1950s pier. The beach stretches east to Sandwich Bay and west to Kingsdown and is perfect for beach walks, beach combing & swimming on hot days. Picturesque fishing boats rest at the top of the shingle beach. Within a 1 mile stretch there are two castles built by Henry VIII. A cycle/footpath runs along the top which is great for children to cycle, scoot and roller boot.
Dover cross-channel ferry port is a fifteen minute drive away & the Eurotunnel terminal at Folkestone is a thirty-five minute drive. The nearest international airport is Gatwick, a 1 hour and 40 minute drive. Deal takes approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes to reach driving from London. The high speed rail link lasts 1 hour and 20 minutes from St Pancras London.
There is so much to do in the area. A car is not required with local attractions reached on foot or by local transport/taxi. There are castles to be explored, gardens to be enjoyed, cycle and walking routes aplenty on the doorstep & within a ten mile radius. There is sea and lake fishing and a championship golf course in Deal. Middle Street, the Conservation area and the north end of the High Street with its independent shops is an interesting area to explore and is at the heart of Deal.
Families are welcome at Admirals Rest. You do not need a car to keep the children amused as there are plenty of fun activities in Deal. The beach is an obvious attraction - paddling, swimming, collecting interesting pebbles and prawning on Kingsdown beach at low tide. Why not scoot along the pier or follow the cycle path past two castles with cannons. All free to do. The best kiddy refreshments have to be at at the Beach Parlour for ice-cream and milkshakes on the pier. There is also a Leisure Pool with wave machine, paddling pool and playgrounds.There are also two micro scooters and 2 bikes suitable for under 5s available on request.
